Update!!!

Sponsored by:









It's been a while since I have updated but with a reason... waiting for stuff and never came.
So needed to improvise, because the show must go on.

Little change is that I'm going to use shiny adapters.







Also, a change in terms of the reservoirs. The choice is now 2x EK 250-X3 reservoirs.
Mounted behind a piece of clear acrylic.





















I also tried some different things about the color of the ASUS mobo, but eventually i've made an extra cover for the original mobo cover.

Measured and cut a piece of acrylic.





Installed the cover to see how it looks.









Nice, but it's just not it. So next idea.

Made ​​one side white



And the other side also white



I'm doing this to get an even color playing with the LED strips.
Also pasted a piece of black mat on the front side, and placed some red LED strips at the back





And installed everything again



















More to come!!!

Awesome patience and such neat precision. :toast:

What confuses my head is that it looks huge but it cant be. Truly an original creation and really, you should be in the boutique PC fashion business. Sell it to Bill Gates. :laugh:

First I want to welcome a new sponsor:
Lumenledverlichting
This company sponsored my builds from the beginning and always with perfect quality LED strips and other accessories.

So also for this build some beautiful LED strips









But first the cables. Because I have used a lot sleeve for the PSU I chose for flat cables in the mid section. For the GPU I have made a slot as tight as possible. This is to get a nice tight line









Beneath the midplate





For the 24 pins I have to make a nice tight flat cable, but it will be placed like this











I did some small changes regarding the placement of the LED strips
The LEDs on the PSU cover I've placed down instead of up, because it seemed quite bright.

Placed the PSU back and changed the color from the cover where the wires go through.













So with enough LED strips in stock I had a nice idea. A cover with case feets.

For this I cut out and filed the outline of the existing scratch.



Cut out 12 plates and made ​​6 of them black. All this I have glued together with ACRIFIX.





And placed 3 LED strips of 60cm strips... lights on please!!!



In order to get a nice even glow I've placed sixth single LEDs in the case feets.









And mounted.







The plate and feet.





Connected everything.



And placed the components back.





In the dark.

Really really nice, Good job..

If you flatten the end of the LEDS you would get a less dot effect from each led.

SPONSOR Update!!!

Provided by ASUS :



Last Thursday I didn't left the house, because I knew there was a very nice package coming

Thank god for tracking ;)



And in the afternoon the yellow / red guy came :)



Omg this is exciting ;)



ASUS has sent me two beautiful GTX 780 DirectCU II cards. TheASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5



And of course...Unboxing:



The box,



And another box,



The accessories:
- 1 x Power cable
- 1 x SLI Bridge
- ASUS GPU Tweak & Driver



The GPU



Beautiful picture, isn't it



The ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • Graphics Engine: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
  • Bus Standard: PCI Express 3.0
  • Video Memory: GDDR5 3GB
  • Engine Clock: GPU Boost Clock : 941 MHz/ GPU Base Clock : 889 MHz
  • CUDA Core: 2304
  • Memory Clock: 6008 MHz ( 1502 MHz GDDR5 )
  • Memory Interface: 384-bit



The card features a self-designed PCB that features a 10-phase VRM.
This ensures that the card can deliver up to 30% more voltage and less noise is present,
enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen voltage modulation tolerance, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times over reference.



The GPU has the latest generation DirectCU II cooler. These features as previous models two fans. One is called Cool Tech fan, it combines two types of fans and thus creates more air flow that benefits the cooling capacity.









Beneath these fans is an aluminum cooling surface present with five heatpipes. Four of them have a thickness of 8 mm.













The central heat pipe is 10 mm.





Power Connector: 6 pin / 8 pin



Ports:
  • HDMI 1 x
  • DisplayPort 1 x
  • DVI 2 x







And a nice aluminum backplate is also present,





And some more nice pictures of both







Was a bit worried they would'nt fit because of the dimensions (28.7 x 14.73 x 4.06 cm)
But no problem :)







So now we wait for the great waterblocks from EKWB, but they will be released soon
Until then ..... Game on :)

There he is again!!

Took a while but.....we continue where we left off. First a great gratitude to HighFlow for the beautiful sponsorship due some required items.
What would I do without HighFlow??



What I have ordered for this build:

Masterkleer - HighFlow - 3/8 ID - 1/2 OD - Clear



A NZXT Frontpanel Cable Set





PSU 24-Pin extension cable



And a PSU 8-Pin CPU extension cable



I'd also needed some adapters and chose the Alphacool HF 5-Way Splitter





And the Alphacool HF 3-Way Splitter



I'm also trying some things/ ideas with some Lamptron switches, such as the Lamptron 19mm DOT Red



And ordered 2 Lamptron 19mm RING Red



More on this later. Naturally need some valves



Of course a beautiful Highflow T-shirt



Thanks Highflow And Freddy

Bought some nice SSDs which come in handy in this build

Thanks Peter :)



The back as it was



Customized a piece of acrylic with 4 SSDs inside



Placed like this



A red piece of acrylic where i've mounted the SSDs... and is easily removable



mounted the big transparent plate



Cut a recess for the cables





Made this black





Placed an LED strip behind, but still need one more



Placed the 24pin extension like this









Also been busy with the rad grill and the cover for PSU in the front.
Normally I do everything by hand, but my good friend Pascal van Veen helped me with his home made CNC machine. Thanks Pascal van Veen ... your the best mate.
So this time not by hand....sorry ;)

Movie first:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XiaKpj0qb0


As seen in the movie, the result... a beautiful rad grill











And a great cover with EKWB



And of course ASUS



=Total





Also with some LED strips from lumenledverlichting











That's it for this update...more to come!!!

The beautiful ASUS GTX780-DC2-3GD5 I have for a while in possession now, but was still waiting for the beautiful EKWB blocks.

So very happy when the EKWB package arrived:



Unboxing!!!

2x The beautiful full cover EK-FC780 GTX DCII Nickel (Original CSQ)





The water block itself













Off course all accessories included to give the GPU a new look



Installation of these beautiful products in a moment ;)



Also received 2x great EK-FC780 GTX DCII Backplates more on this also later on

Not to forget also in the EKWB box, the EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ Nickel







With accessories













Made a little movie for you guys of installing the block on the GPU

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig4HGMaoRHc

After this job.... the pictures. It was allready a very beautiful GPU, but this rocks if I may say so myself







And the superb backplates







Placed them right away to see how it looks instead of the "smaller" GPUs





Before I continue with the placement and routing of everything, I did another small adjustment. The radgrill:
I pasted first white and then black vinyl. White for better light distribution and black to finish the whole thing.

And placed red LED strips behind.





Lights out





Back to the water blocks and routing. This was already known, but I had to change because of other measurments EK-FC link (placed a little bit higher)



After some fitting and measuring... again managed to get everything straight



Looks like...



Connected everything with the C47 adapters.











And some pics with the LEDS on









Creative again with adapters and acrylic tube (masking tape will be removed and need to make cover for the LED strip and open space ;) )







Next update... filling the Scratch!!!

Love it when people manage to get that glowing effect from behind things with LED's. I never seem to manage it my self and you either see a harsh circle of light or its just to weak to get the full glow effect behind the object im trying to light up.

Pump out to the first radiator



And from radiator to radiator





Then RAM block in, then from RAM block out naar CPU... And the rest you know and is visible





First a little filling up movie:

Adding some liquid movie

Covered everything with toilet paper



Sadly I haven't more Mayhem pastel red, but enough for a flow



This aint working :)



And some pictures of a (½) filled Guilty





















Of course the back will have some changes

A reservoir cover. For this I have cut and bended a plate aluminum







Made it black



And in the middle ​​a red piece like the SSDs



Reservoirs / liquid looks better now, but there will be some light in it



I also made a cover for the PSU compartment... more about this later ;)



Until the next one :)
